Situated in western Pennsylvania, Twin Lakes Center is a non-profit treatment facility that specializes in the care of clients struggling with alcohol and substance use disorders. In addition to a detox and residential program on the main campus, Twin Lakes offers an affordable, comprehensive Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and outpatient services at four locations in Johnstown, Ebensburg, Bedford and Meyersdale. Founded in 1983, the facility employs an integrative treatment approach that includes an array of therapeutic methods including evidence-based modalities, education services and the 12-step recovery.
Treatment and Staff
Before beginning treatment, clients meet with a counselor to undergo a comprehensive assessment. This evaluation helps to determine the most effective care plan. PHP, IOP and outpatient services can be ideal for clients that either cannot commit to residential treatment or for individuals transitioning back into regular life from an inpatient program. Clients benefit from the consistent treatment structure and continue to work and live at home.
Clients in PHP engage in 22 hours of therapy a week working a curriculum that combines DBT and the 12-step recovery method in addition to addiction education. At this level, the facility provides two weekly one-on-one hour-long therapy sessions and four group sessions. While the duration of care varies depending on the needs and progress of the client, typically individuals stay in PHP for eight weeks.
Upon completion of PHP, many clients transition into the IOP program. The IOP offers seven therapeutic hours a week that entails two weekly group sessions and one one-on-one. Group sessions generally last three hours. Discharge planning is an integral aspect to the programming at this level. As such, much of the time is focused on relapse prevention to best prepare clients for the environment triggers they will face once they are finished with therapy.
Finally, Twin Lakes provides an outpatient level of care where clients work with a counselor to design the most effective possible program tailored to their needs and goals. From there individuals engage in up to five hours of therapy a week, be it group sessions, individual sessions or both.
Twin Lakes is comprised of therapists, addiction specialists, a physician and a nursing team. Medication management is available for clients in need of dual diagnosis support.
In addition to detox, residential and various levels of outpatient care, Twin Lakes is now working with the United Way to provide a life skills program.
The facility provides family counseling for adolescent clients in the outpatient program.
